Launch Loops

This is Da Bomb – in a good way.

With an estimate of Two Billion Dollars — i.e., within the budget of many wealthy men, a minor rounding error at the Pentagon, and comfortably within the budgets of any nation of note (right down to Mexico, I think) and several large cities — you can get a launch cost of $3.00 a kilogram.

That’s airline prices.

Even if you drive all the prices up by a factor of ten Just Because, it’s definitely worth it.
